Last night I turned on the tube to take a rest from work.
I flipped the channel to HBO.
Immediately I recognized the face of a football legend being
interviewed. He had such a presence about him that I couldn’t
even entertain the idea of changing channels.
Who was this man?
Jim Brown, NFL Hall-of Fame running back, a man who literally
ran over his opponents when he played for the Cleveland Browns
in the 1960’s.
Partway through the movie Brown began talking about attitude. He
said that everything boils down to your attitude. Then he mentioned
Psycho-Cybernetics as a book he read that played an important role
in his success. He mentioned the book twice. He did not mention any
other books during the program.
Additionally, one of the things I found MOST intriguing was how Jim
Brown said he and a few teammates would get together the night before
a game to review their playbook. But they referred to it as their “attitude
play book.” They reviewed their ATTITUDE toward the plays they were going
to be running.
How does this relate to YOU?
Well, let’s say tonight before you go to bed, you make a list of some of the
things you need to do tomorrow. And after you’ve made this list, you look it
over and ask yourself what you attitude is toward each item on the list.
Once you know what your attitude toward each item is, you can make a choice
to adjust it. You can change the way you’re picturing the situation. And as you
picture it you can alter your attitude, putting more enthusiasm, more passion
and more LIFE into it.
Your attitude play book.
What a concept.
